6:00 am
across the country. they say the most dangerous part of mental illness is not the potential for violence but rather the stigma that prevents individuals and their loved ones from seeking help. i'm anderson cooper. thanks for watching. the blue nissan was discovered covered in brush. >> new developments in the amber alert case that has the entire country on the lookout. we'll take you live to idaho where a fresh lead gives new hope. >> this is ridiculous. this is ridiculous. thank you. >> get wrun ching testimony in usher's child custody case. what prompted the judge to remove the superstar's ex-wife from the stand? >> it would be very strange if she had refused to show a bag.
6:01 am
>> the plot thickens in the case of the swiss handbag. what the zurich shop is now saying about the incident that has oprah claiming racism. good morning everyone. >> it's 6:00 here at cnn world headquarters in atlanta. this is new day saturday. we have breaking news overnight. the worst fears of one family confirmed in the tragic case of a california kidnapping. >> the san diego county sheriff says the second body found in last week's fire is ethan anderson. authorities are now searching for his sister hannah in idaho. where they found that car of alleged kidnapper james dmanlg yo. >> the pair thought to be in the frank church river of no return wilderness area. >> there was nothing immediately alarming about this pair. they did appear to have beer
6:02 am
with them, camping equipment it seemed to him. i think he described the interaction as odd but nothing alarming. >> we'll go to cascade, idaho. miguel, the wilderness area is 2.3 million acres. so what are authorities doing to find them right now? >> reporter: it is a huge area and right now they've cordoned off some of the perimeter blocking it off and monitoring all traffic into and out of the forest area. they believe they've cast the net wide enough so any direction they would have gone over the two days since they've been spotted they'd still be within that area. they are also preparing hundreds of searchers to get up there in vehicles, horse back, and by helicopter in order to get into specific areas and try to figure out where they might be and look for any signs of life in this vast wilderness area. >> miguel, what do authorities make of this characterization of
6:03 am
this person on horse back that this was odd but there was nothing alarming suggesting that she didn't seem particularly agitated when they saw her? >> i spoke to investigators yesterday and they said that she did not appear to be under duress. the person on horse back who said that it seemed odd. it's not clear whether or not the -- their actions or behavior was odd or whether or not just them being out in the middle of nowhere was odd. i do know they had fairly light camping gear, medium to light, not the heavy, rugged stuff you'd expect to be several days into a very back wilderness area like they were. and he also didn't come to that conclusion it was odd until after he realized they were -- the people that were being searched for in the amber alert. so it is hard to draw a lot from that statement. we were trying to talk to that person on horse back to get a little more clarity on that, victor. >> very difficult week for this family. hopefully they get some answers
6:04 am
soon. thank you. and be sure to stay with us because later this morning we'll speak with a friend of hannah's to ask about the relationship between dimaggio and anderson and his so-called crush on her. we also have new information this morning about embattled san diego mayor bob filner who is of course mired in a sexual harassment allegation controversy. he has left we found out a behavior therapy program a week early. that is according to his chief of staff. >> recall efforts are ramping up including a letter from personal friend senator barbara boxer urging him to step down. let's start with this departure from this intense therapy. what do we know about that? just so bizarre. >> really. >> he checked in early is what his office is saying so that is why he checked out early but his critics are saying he just used this as an excuse to get out of a deposition, a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by his former communications director. he was supposed to give the
6:05 am
deposition august 9th while in rehab and got a note from his doctor saying he couldn't show up. his critics are saying he used this as an excuse to get out of that. he didn't want to commit perjury. his office says he'll continue in an out patient program. it is unclear whether he'll even be able to get into his office. the locks were changed on mayor filner office overnight so we're waiting to get comment from mayor filner. he has not spoken at all about this. it is unclear who ordered the locks changed or why but the city attorney office told our local affilite they agreed with the move. you talked about that personal letter, right, the barbara boxer letter. he is getting criticism from all angles including his personal friend who wrote an open letter which said in part i believe we have a graphic here on this. it says i must say this directly to you, bob. you must resign because you have betrayed the trust of the women you have victimized, the san diegan you represent, and the people you have worked with throughout your decades in public life. he is getting it from all
6:06 am
angles, guys. >> what made it very clear he just wants to hang on right now to power as mayor, he is nhas n appointed an interim mayor. he wants to stick it out. some people have said maybe he's trying to run out the clock. some people want to recall him. where does the effort stand? >> this is where it gets tricky. bob filner could be in office until early 2014. because of all the red tape surrounding a recall not only could it be very expensive "the washington post" says as much as $6 million to have this recall, but it takes time. this group has to collect signatures, they have to get a stamp of approval by the city clerk, then the city council has to vote on it. all of that could take months. it could be as early as november we see this recall go forward or as late as early next year. so bob filner, you may be hearing this name for a long time to come. >> is interesting they changed the locks. he hasn't resigned, no recall. someone says he shouldn't be back in. we'll see where that goes. >> that says you're not welcome here doesn't it? >> thank you. >> all right.
6:07 am
appreciate that. well, the rain is still causing a lot of trouble across the country. wow. those cars were just washed off the highway in manitou springs, colorado. 17 states are under a flood watch warning this morning. let's go to the cnn severe weather center. jennifer, this video is amazing. >> incredible. we are talking about flash flooding as well as a mud slide. you saw those cars just washing away. we have seen scenes like that out of the midwest as well as the plains over the last couple days but out of manitou here is the cell that moved through. it was quite strong and produced roughly 1.5 inches of rainfall. it is a burn scar area. that allowed for even greater runoff and that is from the fires from last year alone. that's the result of that. now as we look at the radar notice what's happening there. showers and thunderstorms once
6:08 am
again just parts of missouri as well as arkansas. the heaviest rain right now in the southeastern part of missouri. that's why we have flood warnings and watches in place through today. a lot of the flash flood warnings are going to expire around 9:00 local time but some of the watches are going to last until 1:00. that means it's still going to be dangerous out there. make sure you're paying attention to the roadways and not driving through or walking through some of the flooded streets. as i point out some of the rainfall totals, some of these picked up more than 15 inches of rainfall in five days. that's why we're talking about all this flash flooding and more is on the way. we point out for areas like southern missouri we could see another 2 to 4 especially in the southeastern portion. but anywhere in yellow is where we'll see our heaviest rain over the next couple days on a wider view out in the west if you want sunshine or dry air you need to go out in that direction and for areas including the northeast we'll see some scattered showers around. here are your high temperatures for today. 100 degrees in dallas. it is going to be hot down in
6:09 am
the south and for atlanta steamy hot. back to you guys. >> all right. thank you very much. >> this is what happens. when i leave d.c. the weather gets nice there. when i come to atlanta it happens here. >> all the time. >> i'm always missing the good stuff. >> when you go back it'll be bad. >> i like the little dance. >> thanks, jennifer. let's head overseas now. the u.s. consulate in pakistan has been evacuated due to a terror threat. it does not appear to be connected to the greater threat that closed multiple embassies last week because of a threat from al qaeda. a senior state department official says the u.s. will reopen 18 out of the 19 embassies. the u.s. embassy in yemen will remain closed. with his administration under fire president obama is taking steps to try to assure americans the u.s. surveillance programs don't cross the line. cnn's rene marsh reports. >> reporter: president obama says while government surveillance programs have not been abused he needs to do a better job explaining them.
6:10 am
>> a general impression has i think taken hold not only among the american public but also around the world that somehow we're out there willy nilly just sucking in information on everybody and doing what we please with it. that's not the case. >> reporter: at the same time he says leaks from edward snowden have given the programs a bad rap. >> i don't think mr. snowden was a patriot. >> reporter: to give the american people more confidence he is proposing working with congress to put more safeguards on the patriot act program that collects their telephone records. an independent voice to challenge government claims when it asks a judge to approve the programs, that the intelligence community create a website detailing what it does and doesn't do, and that the justice department make public the legal basis for the programs. he wants outside experts to reveal whether there are new ways including technology to
6:11 am
prevent abuse. >> if i tell michelle that i did the dishes, now, granted, in the white house i don't do the dishes that much. but back in the day. and she's a little skeptical, well, i'd like her to trust me, but maybe i need to bring her back and show her the dishes. and not just have her take my word for it. >> show her the dishes. that's what he is saying. rene marsh joining us now live from washington. rene, one of the, i think, perhaps complicating factors here is congress. i mean, congress will have to get involved here. how likely is it that they'll be able to act? >> reporter: right. you're right about that. you heard the president in his own words yesterday. he said that he does plan to work with congress to reform the patriot act, which we know allows the government to collect americans' phone records, specifically the phone numbers and the duration of the call. so the goal would be to improve
6:12 am
privacy protection. we do know that following the president's press conference the senate intelligence committee announced already that they're planning on holding major hearings on this very issue but your question how likely is it that congress will act? we know that there are deep divides over this. lawmakers who say the program is working well as is but there are other lawmakers who say the president must do a better job at balancing national security along with privacy rights. so you know what that means when there is a divide. it means we're setting up for another fight and you know how that works here in d.c. >> that's right. it is so weird. i think a lot of people are look agate this. you have some folks on right and the left who feel similarly about these programs. they don't like them. it is going to be a very interesting fight come fall. rene marsh in washington, thanks. we have new video this morning of the 31-year-old man in florida accused of murdering his wife and then posting a photo of her dead body on facebook. look at this.
6:13 am
what you're seeing here is medina turning himself into police and the man with him is his father. medina is being held without bond on a preliminary murder charge. the 17-year-old in kentucky accused in the beating death of his step brother has been found not guilty. the jur deliberated for eight hours before reaching that verdict. the young man was found not guilty of tampering with evidence. his father pleaded guilty to hurder and was sentenced to life in prison. an east haven, connecticut neighborhood can only wonder what caused a terrible plane crash that left two houses destroyed and two children dead. >> this is very difficult. >> this is ridiculous. this is ridiculous. >> all right. step down. >> thank you. >> raw emotion, tears, and even hugs in a custody battle between usher and his ex-wife just days after their 5-year-old nearly drowned. we will take you inside the courtroom.

in a plane crash yesterday in connecticut. >> a former microsoft executive was piloting the turboprop plane that smashed into two homes. two boys were killed in one home. the fire and the flooded basement kept firefighters from searching for more victims. a judge has ruled music mogul usher can keep custody of his two young sons. this decision was made friday in an emergency custody hearing in atlanta. >> cnn has more on this. >> reporter: an upexpected embrace between usher raymond and his ex-wife moments after a judge ruled in the singer's favor. >> dismissing the motion. >> reporter: the emergency custody hearing played out in a packed courtroom friday. first on the stand was tamika foster raymond who was hoping to get temporary custody of her 4 and 5-year-old sons after one of them nearly drowned in a pool earlier in the week. her testimony was emotional. >> i don't know if my son is
6:18 am
going to have a brain defect, i don't know if his heart is operating correctly. i don't know that my son is going to be 100% the boy he was before this incident. >> she kept her head down as they played the 911 call in court. >> is he breathing? he breathing? he's breathing. okay. >> and at one point foster raymond became so upset the judge intervened. >> i know this is very difficult. >> this is ridiculous. this is ridiculous. >> all right. step down. >> thank you. >> a sharp contrast from usher who appeared calm even as he described trying to comfort his son the day of the accident. >> my son was hysterical in the back of the ambulance. he was very irate and i did my best to calm him down and help him understand what had taken
6:19 am
place. >> rena ode n and the woman caring for the boy also took the stand. the judge found her to be a competent care giver despite testimony from foster raymond saying she did not think aunt rena could handle the boys. >> there are times foster said while on the stand that she doesn't know where the boys are. she doesn't have a phone number for them. she doesn't know who was with those children. so obviously for a mother it is distressing. >> and having lost her other son recently, usher's step son. the judge went on to say the boy's near drowning was an awful accident and he is not certain any one person could have done a better job taking care of the boys. was it racism or a simple misunderstanding? you know we're talking about why queen of talk oprah says she didn't exactly get the royal treatment recently at a boutique in zurich. her startling allegation and a response after the break.

6:25 am
finally to switzerland where oprah winfrey says she was the victim of racism at a high end boutique. >> reporter: oprah winfrey claims a shop assistant here in zurich refused to sell her a $38,000 crocodile handbag because it was too expensive for her. was this snooty shop keeping, a racist snob as oprah suggests or a simple misunderstanding by a sales assistant not speaking her own language? the manager tells me who wouldn't want to sell a handbag worth seven times your monthly salary? she also says the customer in this shop is queen and when the queen of talk leaves unhappy the world gets to know about it. >> they sure do. thank you for that. victor? >> well, while the frantic search for hannah anderson and her alleged kidnapper goes on in idaho her family is coping with the new tragedy, one they already feared. despite allegations of sexual harassment, san diego's mayor refuses to quit. now some plan to take the decision out of bob filner's

6:32 am
wants his daughter hannah back. police believe his friend of 20 years james dimaggio snatched hannah sometime after the 16-year-old finished cheerleading practice late saturday afternoon. sunday, san diego county firefighters respond to calls of dimaggio's house engulfed in flames only to find the body of hannah's mother inside. they also find the remains of hannah's 8-year-old brother ethan which have now been positively identified by the san diego crime lab. monday california goes statewide with an amber alert for dimaggio, hannah, and ethan. for the first time california sends amber alerts to cell phones statewide. tuesday hundreds of tips pour in to authorities. by wednesday potential sightings of dimaggio's blue nissan prompt oregon, washington, and nevada to issue their own amber alerts. on thursday, a chilling comment from police. dimaggio may have booby trapped his nissan and abandoned it and they say the suspect may be carrying explosives.
6:33 am
>> our investigation to date has brought to light a possibility that he has explosives on his person. >> reporter: police say dimaggio may be headed to canada or mexico or just about anywhere really or they say he could be hunkered down in one of the pacific northwest's vast wilderness areas. friday his car was found in idaho. for bret anderson an agonizing wait. >> i can't fathom what happened. he obviously just lost it. >> so how has dimaggio managed to evade capture and how challenging is this man hunt? our guest is a private investigator, former fbi special agent and has been with us several times before and is back to talk about this. we appreciate it. let's talk about this wilderness area. 2.3 million miles. i mean, how do you search something so large? >> what happens is you have to zoom back in where those guys on horse back spotted these folks.
6:34 am
>> okay. >> and you start from there. >> okay. how does that happen? i mean, is there a perimeter that you set? walk us through that. >> what is going to happen, they'll have to -- you can't drive in. so they'll have to set up check points at trail heads. in my mind this is this guy's last stand. he's left san diego. he's made it up here. now what do we do? and i'm telling you, it would be my opinion that if i can't have her no one else can. i think it is a very dangerous situation. >> so you believe that, i mean, it's an uncomfortable thing to discuss, but if they don't come out of here with police getting them you think this is going to be it for both of them? >> i think it could be and let me tell you why. we know he couldn't have brought in that much food. he's got to stay near water. you can look at maybe, you know, this bear grills on tv and see how he can live out in the wilderness for a week with a
6:35 am
shoe string or whatever. these people aren't like that. they have to stay near water. the problem is if you don't treat the water they will have a horrible dysentery problem. >> and this person on horse back said they had light camping gear, just a few things. >> certainly. this weather gets cold at night, down to the 40s. during the day it's 80s. you probably can't afford to put on a fire because if he does, that thing is like a magnet. you can see it for miles. so he's doing some pretty rough camping right now. >> how is it that this man has been able to evade law enforcement across the country looking for him for so long? >> well, interstates. he got on that interstate probably 5 out of san diego, drove all the way up to idaho. decided this was the area he is going to make his last stand, gets in there, if he doesn't steal a car he is on foot.
6:36 am
>> let's talk about the relationship between the two between dimaggio and hannah. we've spoken with some people who know that and say that, quote, he is being villainized and that hannah is not so innocent. also, this rider says that she didn't seem to be under duress. what does that suggest to you if anything? >> my first reaction is, if i've got a 16-year-old, i've captured this 16-year-old, i've threatened her to such extent she is probably not going to say anything. i don't think you can read a lot into that. >> yeah. >> i think you have to read a lot into the fact, though, you've got this guy and a 16-year-old young girl. no. she's not there willingly. >> okay. all right. harold copus, good to have you again. >> thank you. coming up at 8:30 this morning we'll be talking to hannah anderson's best friend who witnessed a disturbing interaction between hannah and dimaggio and also the queen of talk is being talked about again. a lot of buzz about oprah's role in the new film "the butler."
6:37 am
>> i don't know how many stories you're going to hear. they swore him to some kind of secret code. >> lady o back on the big screen and she is not getting any softball questions from us. >> do you feel like you still experience racism in any form?

6:42 am
may i see that bag right above your head? and she says to me, no. it's too expensive. >> but the shop's manager says this entire incident was a, quote, 200% misunderstanding and had nothing to do with racism. >> the employee would be more than happy to sell this bag. the sale of this bag would have been like seven times that of her monthly salary and this would have definitely been a great feeling of success for her. >> oprah is also making a big return to the silver screen. >> that's right. after more than a decade away from hollywood she is back with the new film "the butler" and cnn's michelle turner sat down with oprah to find out what inspired her to take the role. >> reporter: so your first dramatic role in 15 years. >> can you believe that, michelle? can you believe it? really. what made me say yes to that? >> that was my question. >> especially since i was going
6:43 am
through it. i was going through building own and thank goodness we were on the other side at least headed in the right direction for that and i said to lee, this is the absolute worst time you could ask me to do anything, lee. and, you know, he just would not take no for an answer. i think that one of the reasons why there's so much still lingering prejudice and racism is because we don't get to see people as ourselves. and so this was an opportunity thought to let the world feel the heart of a butler, the heart of this period that really was a defining period in the lives of many black people but also our nation. >> the conversation that is had in this film about race, race relations, racism, we're still having that conversation today. >> i think we'll be having that conversation for a long time, because, you know, all of this -- conversations about race, conversations about profiling, regardless of what race is being profiled, is
6:44 am
really about our march to humanity, about our march to not fearing one another. and i think when you don't have stories and you don't have a placement in the culture where people can see that there's a whole tapestry, you know, one of the reasons why i loved this film and wanted to be part of it is because of the tenderness between the husband and wife and the tenderness and nurturing nature of the middle class family. you know, so many images -- >> i've never seen that before. >> i know you haven't seen that before. i know. >> seriously. i had never seen that before. >> isn't that just shocking? when i ask other people, white people, black people, when have you seen a tenderness and honor and respect and longevity, people who have been together and can finish each other's sentences and you can see the caring, the caring in that family happens not just when they're in bed together, cecil and gloria, but when they're sitting at the table and finishing each other's sentences
6:45 am
and she says, what was the name of that movie honey? >> "in the heat of the night." >> "in the heat of the night." you can feel that. do you feel like you still experience racism in any form? >> i -- nobody is going to come up to me and call me the "n" word unless they're on twitter and i can't find them. twitter thugs. >> oh, the twitter thugs. so i've learned to leave the twitter thugs alone. unless it's something ridiculous nobody is going to do it. but i experienced racism in ways that you experience when you have reached a level where people can't call you to your face by, you know, other than your name. i experience it through people's expectations and lack thereof. i use it to my advantage. it is a wonderful thing when people count you out because they think you can't do something. >> interesting take there. >> yes.

ail ex-rodriguez played his first game at yankee stadium this season and did very little at the plate to win over the home crowd. >> joe carter joins us for this morning's bleacher report. hey, joe. >> good morning, guys. the question coming in to last night was how would yankee fans react to a-rod's return to the bronx. earlier in the week we saw plenty of chicago fans boo him when they played the white sox. the reaction last night was mixed. plenty of boos but a lot of cheers. take a listen to the fans' reaction during the first at
6:51 am
bat. >> number 13. alex rodriguez. >> all right. there you go. the manager joe girardi after the game said he thought it was 50/50. very pc of him. alex rodriguez' performance at the plate did not help his cause with yankee fans. he struck out three times. it seemed the boos got louder after each strikeout but later in the game yankee fans had plenty to cheer about when bret gardner hit a walk off single in the bottom of the ten. the yankees would go on to win and snap the tigers's win streak. let's talk golf where the pga field is not chasing tiger woods or phil mickelson today but jason duffner. duffner shot a 63 yesterday. that is a major record and only 23 golfers have ever shot a 63 in a major. this guy had five birdies. an amazing eagle right there and no bogeys. he starts today two shots ahead of everybody else. tiger woods starts today tied for 38th and has a lot of work
6:52 am
to do if he wants to be in contention. he is ten shots back and a likely long shot to win his first major since 2008. go to bleacher report.com with a nice breakdown of winners and losers so far. nfl preseason action last night. tim tebow made his debut. it's sort of tebow time. we know he is certainly the most talked about backup quarterback this preseason and he took on the eagles last night. he did take the majority of the snaps because second string quarterback brian malek was out of the game because of a head injury and tebow's debut was less than inspiring. he only completed four passes. he was shaky at times. then there were times when we saw vintage tebow. he would make something out of nothing which he has done so often. certainly will be interesting to see how the patriots use him if they use him at all this season. i know that is certainly one talked about backup quarterback. great video of peyton manning and his brother eli. >> i love that video.

so good. joe carter, thank you. all right. victor, you have to see this viral video, football on -- this is exactly what joe was talking about. >> yes. >> have you seen it? football on your iphone starring eli and peyton manning. so bad it's good. >> so bad it's good. >> check this out. ♪ football so now is your chance to have football on your phone and football in your pants ♪ ♪ look at the guy using his phone as a phone your phone ain't for calling your phone's for footballing ♪ >> the good thing about these guys is that they have the personality. the funny one that made us both laugh. >> yep. >> the two stars made the rap video for directv but it is not just a hit online. >> according to espn the giants' locker room cannot stop playing or singing football on your phone. >> all day we'll have football in your -- okay. what do you think about this? do they have a future with this whole thing? maybe not seriously. >> look.

7:00 am
just wave a stick. >> i just go the other way. yep. >> thanks for starting your morning with us. next hour of "your new day" starts right now. >> the blue nissan was discovered covered in brush. brand new developments in the amber alert case that has the entire country on the lookout. we'll take you live to idaho where a fresh lead gives new hope. >> we simply haven't gotten accurate information about this. there is real science here and that has to be injected into this conversation. >> after years of speaking out against it dr. sanjay gupta has had a revolution. why he changed his mind on medical marijuana. it's a war of words between hollywood's elder action heroes. let's just say sylvester stallone and bruce willis may never share the silver screen
7:01 am
again. good morning everyone. >> it's 7:00 here on the east coast. this is new day saturday. breaking news overnight. we now know that the second body that was found in the california fire was 8-year-old ethan anderson. >> but the mystery of how ethan and his mother died will only be solved when they find this pair. 16-year-old hannah anderson and her alleged kidnapper james dimaggio. finding them will not be easy. they were last seen in the frank church river of no return wilderness area. cnn is in cascade, idaho. the wilderness area is 2.3 million acres. do we know anything about hannah's condition or her state of mind? >> we do. investigators have told me,
7:02 am
victor, that when this horse back rider saw these two individuals, which we have every reason to believe was dimaggio and hannah, that she was -- did she did not seem to be under duress. there seemed to be nothing strange about the interaction between the rider and them or between those two. later, he described it as odd. this was only after he realized these were the two that were probably being looked for in the amber alert. here is how one official put it. >> there was nothing immediately alarming about this pair. the horse back rider said they did appear to have gear with them. they had camping equipment. it seemed to him. i think he described the interaction as odd but nothing alarming. >> the investigator i spoke to as well said the camping equipment they had wasn't the heavy duty sort of camping equipment you might have out here, sort of medium to light gear that you would have in -- for a day or two not a long haul
7:03 am
in deep wilderness where these people were. and it seems that the odd bit that this person was referring to seemed to be that these two people seemed a little out of place for as far back in this wilderness as they were. >> this is a huge wilderness. is it possible that dimaggio could find another way out of the area, perhaps escape to canada? >> it is possible. but look. they went about six miles. from the day that they left the car and covered it with brush and he took the license plates off to where they were spotted on wednesday morning was maybe 24, perhaps 48 hours. it's been now about 72 hours since that spotting. they went six miles in that first bit from the car to where they were first sported. they could go for maybe another six, maybe ten miles today. it is a massive and very, very rough area. it is very difficult for them to make a fast head way in any
7:04 am
direction. investigators believe they have it cordoned off now. no one can get in or out on any roads without them knowing about it and today the intensive search gets under way. back to you guys. >> thank you for that from cascade, idaho. stay with us because in about 9 o minutes we'll have a conversation with a friend of hannah's to ask about the relationship between dimaggio and anderson and how she felt around that older man. across the country parts of 17 states are under a flood watch or flood warning this morning. >> rising waters have claimed another life, this time near colorado springs. flash floods are also blamed for deaths in oklahoma and missouri and forecasters say that more rain is on the way. >> george howell is in hollister, missouri. how are people holding up there? >> good morning. here in hollister, missouri, it
7:05 am
really is all about cleanup. removing big trees that were washed up by all of this flood water. just the other day we saw a flash flood situation happen, a big storm cell that came through very quickly but dropped a lot of rainfall. you can see there's plenty of debris around here. you can see the devastation in some of these homes. and as you mentioned now, this latest death just outside of colorado springs. we understand the body of a man was recovered from debris there. that along with the death in south carolina, in oklahoma city, and two deaths here in the state of missouri certainly a difficult and dangerous situation as this storm system continued to push toward the east. we also know that we're still here under the gun. in fact, we are under a flash flood watch. and that's scary news for people who have seen a lot of rainfall fall very quickly over the last several days. >> it is so dangerous. we're seeing that from pictures
7:06 am
coming in. george howell in missouri, thanks. >> let's go from the floods to a raging wildfire now. in southern california, 25 square miles have gone up in flames. riverside county is now under a state of emergency. let's bring in meteorologist jennifer delgado in the cnn severe weather center. is there any relief for this area in sight? >> unfortunately, it doesn't look like they're going to get the precipitation that they would like to get to help put out these fires. right now we do know they're only at 25% containment and current conditions, keeping the winds at 13 miles per hour, not registering any gusts, but for today and tomorrow, we are expecting dry conditions out there and we're also expecting some of those gusts through today and tomorrow to pop up to about 25 miles per hour. now, as we've seen in the video of the fires out there, again shall the silver fire and those started on wednesday, but we're going to continue to follow that as we go through the next couple days because it looks like they've got a ways to go. firefighters have quite a ways to contain this fire.
7:07 am
we do know that reportedly 15,000 people, should say 1500 people were evacuated from their homes since wednesday. so certainly a dangerous situation. we'll continue to follow the fires as well as the ongoing flooding across parts of the midwest and the colorado area. we have new information about embattled san diego mayor bob filner mired in the sexual harassment allegation, a controversy he has left a behavior therapy program we learned a week early according to his chief of staff. >> and recall efforts are ramping up including a letter from personal friend senator barbara boxer urging him to step down. so, into this intensive, in patient therapy and now he is out. >> now he is out but his chief of staff is saying he checked in early which is why he checked out early. that is how they're kouching it. his critics are saying that's not the case at all and that he used this as an excuse to get out of a deposition.
7:08 am
his communications director filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against him. he was going to be deposed august 9th. that didn't happen. he got a letter from his doctor to get out of it. his chief of staff says he is going to continue the therapy in an out patient program. as we mentioned last hour a little twist to the story. the locks have been changed. that according to a local newspaper and affiliate. i just reached out to the mayor's office to try to get comment. >> on his office. >> wow. >> it is unclear if they were informed about the locks being changed before it happened. if they have the new keys. in san diego you don't have to have an interim mayor. he is still the mayor despite having been in this rehab. who knows what is going to happen when he goes back. >> so bizarre. >> and this letter from barbara boxer, he is getting criticism from all angles. this is coming from personal friends now. >> barbara boxer, long-time senator wrote him an open letter which read in part i must say this directly to you. bob, you must resign because you have betrayed the trust of the women you have victimized, the san diegan you represent and the people you've worked with
7:09 am
throughout your public and private life. >> i think it is now unanimous on the city council that they want him out of there. >> he had two allies on the city council. now they're saying you need to step down. so not only is his own party, long-time friends, even people that were supporting him up until now are saying we don't want anything to do with you. >> no one is on his side in this. >> thank you. the president says, sure. you have a right to ask questions about government snooping. now he is taking steps to ease your concerns about terror surveillance programs. hero: if you had a chance to go anywhere in the world,

but you had to leave right now, would you go? man: 'oh i can't go tonight' woman: 'i can't.' hero : that's what expedia asked me. host: book the flight but you have to go right now. hero: (laughs) and i just go? this is for real right? this is for real? i always said one day i'd go to china, just never thought it'd be today. anncr: we're giving away a trip every day. download the expedia app and your next trip could be on us. expedia, find yours.

news, the u.s. consulate in lahore, pakistan has been evacuated due to a terror threat and it does not appear to be a connected though to the greater threat that closed multiple embassies last week coming from al qaeda. meanwhile a senior state department official says the u.s. will be reopening 18 out of those 19 embassies. the u.s. embassy in yemen though will remain closed. >> president obama is feeling the heat over u.s. surveillance programs. now he is trying to assure americans the government is not over stepping. >> live now to washington and cnn's rene marsh on this story. hi, rene. >> hi. you know the president said yesterday while the government surveillance programs have not been abused he admits he needs to do a better job explaining them. so to give the american people more confidence as he put it in the programs he is proposing outside experts review whether there are new ways including technology to prevent abuse. he is also proposing working with congress to put more
7:14 am
safeguards on the patriot act program that collects their telephone records. a third proposal, an independent voice to challenge government claims when it asks the judge to approve the program. lastly, the president wants the creation of a website detailing what the intelligence committee does and doesn't do. also that the justice department would make public the legal basis for the programs. but why propose these changes now? well, obama says because the leaks from former nsa contractor edward snowden have given the programs a bad rap. take a listen. >> a general impression has i think taken hold not only among the american public but also around the world that somehow we're out there willy nilly just sucking in information on everybody and doing what we please with it. that's not the case. >> all right. there you go. the president there defending
7:15 am
essentially defending the program. >> all right. rene marsh in washington for us. of course this conversation is not over. >> no. >> we'll continue it. we have new video of the man suspected of murdering his wife and then posting photos of her dead body on facebook. miami-dade police released surveillance footage of derek medina walking in to confess to the shooting death of jennifer alfonso. medina is in the tank top. medina is held without bond on a preliminary murder charge. >> tragedy in connecticut. according to the ntsb between four and six people were killed when a small plane crashed into two homes. the victims have not been identified but a former microsoft executive and his son were onboard. also feared dead are two kids who were in one of the homes. their ages are 1 and 13. >> lululemon. have you heard of it? >> i do own some lululemon garb. i've invested in it i should say.
7:16 am
>> is it pricey? >> yeah. >> plus size shoppers accuse the company of discriminating against larger sizes. and now a former employee is speaking out and talking to cnn. lecoca-cola is partneringg. with nashville parent and charlotte parent magazines, along with the mayors of those cities, in the fit family challenge. a community wide program that offers free classes that inspire families to get out, enjoy moving together, and even track their activity online. it's part of our goal to inspire more than three million people to rediscover the joy of being active this summer. see the difference all of us can make... together.

7:23 am
strategy is built around creating products for our target guest in our size range of 2 to 12. madeline jones, co-owner of plus model magazine, says retailers that ignore plus sizes are leaving cash on the table. >> they're running 5 ks and bicycling and swimming. this is what they do. this is part of their life as well. >> 69% of american adults 20 and over are overweight. that's according to the centers for disease control and prevention. with a few shopping options in brick and mortar stores, jones says her readers are shopping online. >> i'm actually looking for overseas designers and brands as well. they're offering clothing to u.s. women also. >> retail experts will tell you, business is not about making everyone happy. it's about the bottom line. if you ask this shopper, it's not about the bottom line. >> it's not easy being a plus

7:32 am
about medical marijuana. that's cnn's dr. sanjay gupta's stunning conclusion after nearly a year of reporting. his new documentary may make you rethink what you thought about weed. listen. >> people are lighting up all over the country. they call it the green rush. marijuana has moved out of the back alleys and into the open. >> happy day. >> in some states it is legal and could be legalized in a a city near you. so easy to get and many think so harmless. but when the smoke clears, is marijuana bad for you? or could pot actually be good for you? >> well, the answer to that question was not at all what sanjay expected. earlier i asked sanjay, what
7:33 am
changed his mind? >> i've been critical of medical marijuana over the years. i've been reporting on this for a long time and i've been pretty critical of it. written magazine articles and other things. when you look at the medical literature there are some 20,000 papers that'll pop up on medical marijuana. the vast majority, i've written 90% of them, are designed to look at harm, the problems, the perils of marijuana. about 6% are said to look at the bad. that's whey found. that paints a pretty distorted picture. i realize now in retrospect it was a distorted picture. it took me getting out of the country looking at labs and other countries doing remarkable research and talking to a lot of patients. i mean, legitimate patients with legitimate problems. probably too easily i dismissed them as just being malingerers trying to get high. when you come to find out these are legitimate patients for whom marijuana works, and nothing else did, the attitude changes
7:34 am
because it becomes a responsibility to provide adequate care for people. >> you say we were systematically misled. >> i think we have been. up until 1943 marijuana was on the list doctors prescribe medicines. for the last years it has been demonized, thought of differently, made a schedule one drug which puts it in the same category as the most dangerous substances in the country. i think, you know, there were a lot of things going on in the early '30s and '40s that may have led to that but the end answer is we haven't gotten accurate information about this. there is real science here and that needs to be injected into this conversation. >> announcer: lot of the documentary is about medical marijuana but what about recreational use? >> you know, for me, i draw a distinction between these things. i really did focus on medical marijuana. and, you know, recognizing that it's a real medicine that can do things other medicines don't. when it comes to recreational, you know, i think, look.
7:35 am
i have kids. i think about the detrimental impact on young people's brains up until age 25 our brains are still developing. i would talk about that age range. but overall, i think that this is one of those things where it's a medicine and while there is a concern about people abusing this, the trade-off shouldn't be to deny people medical care. i don't want my kids or other people using this, you know, and possibly harming their brains but i don't think that should mean we should withhold it as a medicine. >> so after what you've learned and what a lot of doctors and professionals have learned is there any political appetite to reschedule marijuana? >> it's a great question. it's probably the question. because schedule one means we consider this a drug of high abuse potential and no medical applications. and those things simply aren't true. there wasn't science at that time in 1970 to say it was true and there is science now to probably say that it isn't true. so i think rescheduling is something that really should be on the table but your question is about the appetite for that. there is an appetite among some
7:36 am
people but probably not among the people who can actually do this to reschedule it. i haven't heard that. we've asked those questions and i just don't think we're there yet. >> all right. dr. sanjay gupta, thank you. >> nice to see you. thanks. >> don't miss sanjay's special investigation "weed" airing tomorrow night at 8:00 eastern right here on cnn. is marijuana harmful or helpful? cnn's dr. sanjay gupta cuts through the smoke on america's green rush and journeys around the world to uncover the highs and lows of weed. again, tomorrow night 8:00 eastern right here on cnn. negligent and absent. that is how the ex-wife of r & b singer usher raymond painted the singer in court on friday. up next the latest on usher's legal battles plus we'll also talk about beyonce and the reaction to her unexpected makeover.

tricky. there's a deep divide over this and it's not down party lines. it's surprising where you look at where some of the lawmakers stand on the issue, and for example, peter king, a republican, he agrees with the president when the president says the surveillance programs are valuable in fighting terrorism while on the other hand, you have some of the president's own democrats like the senator from colorado who is not with the president on this, and he says that the president must do a better job balancing national security with privacy rights. so really, brianna, it's going to be tricky to see how he is able to navigate all of this and get the reforms that he is asking for. >> here a couple weeks ago, i think it was two weeks ago, the house voted to raotry and restr the monitoring, and they failed narrowly, and that's how dramatic the whole issue can be. >> yeah, and bipartisan report, and missed it by a few votes. it's going to be tough.

8:24 am
which follows jesus christ. >> many things wrong there. it actually rejects jesus as the messiah, and she has the title of the sarah palin of australia. >> these read, beware all food funds terrorism. if she is convicted she will be disqualified from the race in september. i was born in september. -- australia, and it's sort of embarrassing. >> do not believe that, that is not a widely accepted point of view. here is the question, what do you get when you put an outspoken politician in the fight jeter simulation?
8:25 am
>> conservative stances on policy under disdain by the local press, and then he had a chance to simulate a dogfight at a tpupd raising event and needless to say he got carried away. >> i want to fly into the building and blow it up. >> yeah, he later doubled down on his statement, expanding his targets to both the portland press harold and the bangor daily news, talk there about being a little over zealous, doubling down there. >> this is the guy that made the vaseline comment, remember that? >> which one did he say? >> he was speaking about a member of the state house, and he said he has been given me the shaft without vaseline. >> oh, lord. colorful language. >> yes. the search for a san diego teen shifted into the idaho

8:33 am
may have trapped his car. >> our investigation to date has brought to life the possibility he has explosives on his person. >> police say dimaggio may be headed to canada or new mexico or anywhere, really. friday his car was found in idaho. for brett anderson, an agonizing week. >> i can't imagine what happened in jim's head, and obviously he just lost it. >> i am joined now by marissa chavez, who is hannah's very good friend. thank you for talking with us and i know it's an incredibly difficult time, for hannah's family and friends like you. can you give us a sense of who hannah is, just describe her for folks that don't know her. >> she is a very outgoing person. there is never like a dull moment with her.
8:34 am
she is always like crazy and has a good personality and liked by a lot of people. >> how do you know each other? i think you were in gymnastics together, is that right, or you would accompany her? >> yeah, i would go to her gymnastic meets, and we met in middle school, and freshman year we became close and started hanging out all the time. >> so you may have heard this, marissa, hannah and dimaggio were believed to be spotted by a horse back rider and they say she looked fine, and they didn't know until later that maybe something was the matter, and let's listen to what the san diego sheriff says and then i want your response to this. >> i think we should all be optimistic that she appeared to be in somewhat good health and was alive. didn't look like she was being held against her will. >> so he said it doesn't look like she was being held against her will.
8:35 am
you know a little bit about the relationship between dimaggio and this family. what can you tell us? >> i don't think she would have gone willingly with him at all. it's not hard to tell somebody to not act like they are sad or something when they see people, and i don't think she would have gone with him at all. >> you think she is being held against her will despite what you heard from the horse back rider, and we heard from an expert that said that may be the case. and you witnessed a strange interaction betweenimaggio. >> we both felt a little uncomfortable. we were driving home and he just said that he had a crush on her, and we both kind of just, you know, didn't really look at each other and want to make a big deal about it, and then he said, don't think i am weird or
8:36 am
creeper, i just want you to know that if you were my age i would date you. >> how did that make you feel? how did hannah respond? >> she didn't say anything, and she was quiet after that and once we got home, she texted me, well, that was weird. she was creeped out by it if anything, weird. >> that happened a couple months ago? >> yeah, on the way back from her gymnastics meet, so a couple months ago. >> you were coming back from gymnastics with hannah, and i read that she said she wanted you with her if she was going to be alone with him, is that right? >> yeah, whenever he would take her to a meet practice, she wanted me there. >> did her mom know this? >> no, she didn't tell her mom. >> why do you think she didn't tell her mom? >> i think she told me because she said, he was helping out
8:37 am
with ride situations and he was a close friend, and she didn't want to ruin any of that and didn't think anything of it. >> you got the sense that she thought it was weird but maybe something not to be truly alarmed about? >> yeah, i think that's how we both felt. >> can you tell us about the trip to hollywood? >> yeah, it was supposed to be a week trip, and then after a couple days she came back and she asked to hangout, and i said you came back early, and she said that she was on her phone a lot posting pictures and talking to people, and he got upset about that because she was not paying attention to him, and so he took her home early. >> so they won't a trip, just the two of them together to hollywood? >> yeah. >> and did they stay in the same room? what was the situation? >> yeah, i think she said they stayed in a hotel room, and the last night of their trip she went to her godfather's or
8:38 am
something in l.a. >> can you tell us a little more about the relationship? did it kind of seem like he was an uncle? that's what you said that he referred to himself as, so this didn't strike you as really weird that they might go on a trip together, that he might be even a little irritated with her? >> yeah, i mean, he was like an uncle figure to her. he would just, i guess, get jealous over little things, if she was on her phone, and when he would ask her questions she would take a moment to respond, and he got frustrated and he was trying to give her a fun trip, and when she was posting stuff he just got frustrated. >> he got frustrated. did her parents know anything really about this, how close they were or any strange interactions? no? >> no. >> tell us a little bit more about their relationship.
8:39 am
you had known him for years, right? you had been around him many times? >> right, yeah. >> did you ever think that this was weird or you just kind of thought there were a couple strange things that happened? >> he seems like a nice guy. he was just really cool, and after that little comment, you just knew it, but you didn't always think of it or have it on your mind, but didn't seem like anything like that at all. >> maybe something at the time that you sort of brushed aside and didn't focus too much on, but now when you look back to the incidents, what do you think of them? >> now, i think, well, we should have not done -- done something about it or told somebody, but you don't think of those things right away. >> let me ask you this, if hannah were to call you and you are obviously her very good friend and you are very concerned about her, what do you want to say to her? >> if she were to call me i would probably say to just -- i
8:40 am
would ask her what happened, but i would just tell her to, like, run, if she got a chance to leave, to just take it. >> marissa, thank you so much. i know it's tough for you to be here talking about this and i know it's a tough time for you, and obviously we are hoping very much for hannah's safe return as you are as well. thank you. >> you are welcome. we will be right back.

8:58 am
this bag was a $38,000 crocodile bag, and it was high up behind a glass case. and she felt a little embarrassed, the store manager told me that it was so expensive, so when she said to oprah, this is an expensive bag, and she said we have it in other materials, and oprah said i wanted to see it, and the store manager suggested to me that the sales assistant understood that to mean i want to look at it rather than i want to take it down and feel it. that's what the store is saying, and they are saying it was nothing to do with racism, and it was a total understanding and they apologized to oprah that this happened, as half of the swiss tourism board said it was a terrible mistake on the part of the shop, and this is embarrassing for the image of switzerland, victor. >> thank you. thank you so much for starting your morning with us.

9:01 am
they realize the threat is very real at this point and hopefully they are being vigilant, but are they getting guidance on authorities on how to stay safe? >> absolutely. the idea is if you get the flash flood on your cell phone, it's important that you go to higher ground immediately. authorities evacuated 50 people from the mobile home park where i am standing and they are in a local church six minutes away, and they will stay there for at least a week, if not several months until they rebuild their lives. >> people need to respect the danger that water poses, and we have pwbeen seeing that from th pictures coming in. >> and george howe reported there was a fear of looting in that area, and there are people that rush in and try to pick apart things left when there is little bits left. >> that's ashame. >> let's go to the floods from
9:02 am
the raging wildfires. almost 30 square miles have gone up in flames, and riverside county under a state of emergency. let's bring in jennifer delgado in the severe weather center. >> weather conditions are not so bad out there right now as we look at the conditions across the region. we are seeing humidity around 69%, and as we go through today as well as tomorrow we have a chance for some of the wind gusts to peak up to 25 miles per hour, but no rain in the forecast. of course we have been following the fire since it broke out on wednesday. let's go to video to show you what firefighters are dealing with. we know the fire containment is up from 25% to 40%, and you can see burning there more than 1,400 firefighters on the scene there, and water trucks and bull dozers, and already 26 home and one business has been destroyed and 1500 people have fled their homes due to the fire. we will continue to follow that
9:03 am
and of course the devastating flooding hitting parts of the midwest, and even into regions like colorado later on. >> jennifer, thank you for that. >> police may be one step closer to catching a suspected killer. authorities warn this man, joe dimaggio, is dangerous. he could be armed with explosives. he is accused of killing a california mother and her 8-year-old son and kidnapping 16-year-old hannah anderson. and authorities turning to a forest in idaho after a sighting there. miguel marquez is there now. >> reporter: the search for hannah anderson and jim dimaggio gets underway today in earnest. there are hundreds pouring into this area. it's a massive area here, the river of no return wilderness area, and their car was found on friday morning, and they had last been seen about 48 hours
9:04 am
before that when a horse back rider saw them, and so it has been sometime since they have been seen by that horse back rider, about 72 hours. they went about six miles from the time that they dropped -- ditched the car to where the horse back rider saw them, and it has been 72 hours since so they could have gone another six or ten miles or so and the investigators creating a corden, and they are trying to focus in on their search and catch this guy. back to you. >> can you talk a little bit about exactly how far maximum do you think authorities think these two may have been able to make it? the horse back rider spotted the pair, and you are assuming they are on foot? >> reporter: they can't get very far. in a day or two they got six
9:05 am
miles, and in 72 hours they could probably get eight, maybe ten miles, but there are -- it's 300 miles of wilderness out there, but if they have fresh water, they can find shelter, and they had light camping gear, and it gets cold in the 40s here, and you could get high though therma, and all of those things authorities will be looking for. they will be looking for places that they might be going to, trying to guess, basically, where they are, because they cannot cover the entire area. >> miguel marquez, thank you very much. >> last hour we spoke with marissa chavez, who is a good friend of hannah, and she described a close relationship with dimaggio. >> we were driving home and he just said that he had a crush on her, and we both just kind of really didn't look at each or want to make a big deal of it.
9:06 am
i he said i wanted you to know if you were my age i would date you. if she was on her phone, she said when he would ask her questions, she would take a second to respond or something, and he just got frustrated. >> that was from the interview last hour with the friend of hannah anderson. another big story happening this week, listen to this. >> this is very difficult. >> ridiculous. this is ridiculous! >> step down. >> thank you. >> a mother in pain. foster raymond, raw emotion, and hugs at the end of a custody battle between usher and his ex-wife, where a judge ruled the music mogul could keep custody of his two boys after one of them drowned this week. >> and this was a hearing full of drama, and it ended up two
9:07 am
hours long. and she became emotional after they played the 911 call from the drowning incident, and you could tell it was very difficult for her to relive that moment, and then there was usher, who was calm and in control, and he answered questions about the pool incident and explained what happened that day. in the end the judge ruled in his favor, and after the decision was issued, usher seemed very relieved. he hugged his attorneys, and then he walked over to his ex-wife and hugged her. here is what they each had to say about the hearing. take a listen. >> what do you think about the judge's ruling? give us one minute. fplt i need to get back to the hospital. >> it was only a very small amount of evidence that was allowed because it was an emergency trying to get something changed immediately, but for a long-term, i will see
9:08 am
him on the 27th. >> foster raymond making it clear that she will continue to seek physical custody of the children, and the 5-year-old that nearly drown this week is doing well, and usher testified the boy could be out of the hospital as early as this weekend. >> did you see them hug? it seemed like they had an exchange, didn't it? >> yeah, they did say something to each other, and we asked them about it and they did not say what usher told her and her response. >> yeah, that was probably surprising for those in the courtroom, and the divorce was contentious, and his camp didn't expect it, and then at the end, a hug and a few words, and she got a phone number to get in contact with him in case there is something that comes out. >> that was her complaints, where she said i never know where the kids are, and she is also coming off the fact that her son -- usher's step son died
9:09 am
last year. >> yeah n. a watercraft accident. >> yeah, exactly. >> thank you. next on "new day," a federal judge recently ruled the state of ohio must recognize the marriage of two men even though the state bans same-sex marriages, so will this set new precedent? some companies just don't appreciate the power of conversation! you know, i like you! i like you too! at discover, we treat you like you'd treat you. get the it card and talk to a real person.

9:12 am
now to ohio where a judge has ruled that the state must recognize the out of state marriage of two men even though same-sex marriage is banned in ohio. what does this mean for the 35 other states with similar bans on same-sex marriages? >> reporter: it was a 7.5-minute ceremony on the plane on the tarmac in baltimore, maryland, between two people that were in
9:13 am
love and never really wanted to get married. and then one morning you were watching tv -- >> the justices ruled legally married same-sex couples are entitled to federal benefits. >> when the rulings came out, i went over to jon and hugged him and kissed him and said let's get married. >> reporter: there were two problems, same-sex marriage in ohio where they live is banned and john has als, and that eventually leads to death. worried that every day could be their last together, the couple settled on maryland as their destination wedding spot. they could travel by medical jet, and say their vows at the airport and return immediately to their home in cincinnati. >> getting married, it's like nothing changed, but yet everything did. >> do you feel the same way? >> absolutely. it's -- it's as if a void was
9:14 am
